  • during our visit to the Sources Lalla Mimouna, we were initially surprised by this lost place "in the middle of nowhere", our guide ZAID ABBOU (painter and calligrapher) passionate and exciting, makes a nice tribute to the Morocco Berber culture, by presenting us with objects of the past, and these sources highlighted in this beautiful place, by the work he himself made, one quote key. Antoine de St Exupéry accompanies us throughout the visit with the quotations of the little Prince... a very nice meeting... which I would keep in memory a long time... a "life lesson"... Thank you Mr. ABBOU!

  • A must to visit. The history and the artefacts are very very interesting. The source is magical. The founder Zait Abbou will welcome you with great explanations
  • The visit took us 1 hour but it was worth 3 centuries of time travelling while seeing all the collected materials Mr Zaid exposed and gave back somehow to life. Located in the middle of a rocky island, the view of bubbling water is just awesome 😊
  • superb. Stop there, Zaid is a fantastic host
  • Very nice, very rewarding visit. I recommend it to you, we are left with a dessert rose offered by the owner of the premises. Nice touch.
